When I bought my B, the motor was stuck. I was going to rebuild it anyway, but I think the liner kits that I got were about $99. for each hole. That was a liner, new piston, piston pin, & ring set. By the time I was done with having the cylinder head redone with all new valves, valve seats, & guides, I think I had about $650.-$700 bucks in the engine. I don't know if thats a lot of money to some of the other fellows, but I did everything myself except the machine work on the head. I probably would've done that to if I didn't sell my valve grinding equipment years ago. With the whole resto, including the paint and the original purchase price,I have (I think) around $1800. in the ole' girl. On top of that, I had a ball restoring her.. Would like to do another AC some day. I like the WF's...

The ring sets come in a package with each sleeve kit, but you have to install them on each piston according to the instructions. The rings are marked on the package as to what ring land they get installed on. The way I did it was I installed each compression ring one at a time in the cylinder bore, and pushed each one down a couple inches down the bore with the piston turned upside down in order to make sure the ring is straight in the newly installed liner. Then I checked the end gap against the mfr's specs just to make sure things were correct, set the end gap to spec (if neccessary) and did each cylinder that way. Then I installed the rings to the new mounted pistons, oiled em' up along with the new liner and gently drove each piston/rod assy in. Done deal. Don't forget to check the rod bearing clearances with Plastigage also for the correct clearances...... Steve
